Pellionia repens – Trailing Watermelon Begonia
Trailing Watermelon Begonia is an vining plant featuring dark green, lanceolate leaves with a light green central band. The overlap between the two colors creates a whispy, smoky pattern which is very eye catching. Sometimes the leaves will tinge pink or purple. They are carried on long, pink stems which spill over, making this plant an excellent choice for hanging baskets and containers alike.
